Today’s post comes from Daryl Taylor, a high school physics and astronomy teacher in Connecticut. It was originally posted in response to this question on the NSTA Physics Listserv: “Has anyone had students collaborate with another class in a different locality for any class projects or assignments?”
I have, and love to, run collabs with various ...
You can now play Angry Birds in Google Chrome! This makes getting footage for video analysis much easier. Here you go:
Download the video file for your own analysis. I used Camtasia Studio (free trial) to do the screen recording.

This must-watch video is from our friend Derek Muller, physics educator and science video blogger.
It is a common view that “if only someone could break this down and explain it clearly enough, more students would understand.” Khan Academy is a great example of this approach with its clear, concise videos on science. However it ...
Today we have a guest post from Derek Muller, a physics educator who runs the science video blog Veritasium. Derek is @veritasium on Twitter.
I have made some great pseudoteaching – but it was all in the name of research, let me assure you.
My interests in physics, education, and film converged in a doctoral dissertation at the University of ...
As part of a session on innovative practices in science at TeachMeet New Jersey 2011, I gave a presentation entitled “Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Increasing Engagement in Science”
I have posted that presentation, complete with speaker’s notes and plenty of links to further information, here: http://bit.ly/EngageSci
